Netflix’s ‘Sweet Home 2’ Promises Bigger Scale and Intense Battles

Seoul - Netflix's hit apocalyptic horror series "Sweet Home" is set to return for its second season with an expanded scale and intensified battles. Producer Lee Eung-bok revealed at a media event in Seoul on Thursday that the series, based on a popular Naver webtoon, has received a full upgrade in every aspect, including filming, art, and visual effects. The first season, released in December 2020, garnered global acclaim for its unique blend of post-apocalyptic narrative, fantastical elements, and intense gore. Season 2 will delve deeper into the characters' development and introduce new ones, expanding upon unresolved stories from the first season.

According to Yonhap News Agency, the series, which features humans, monsters, and hybrid creatures in a fight for survival, distinguishes itself with its curse-induced monsters, as opposed to traditional infection-based zombie narratives. Actor Song Kang returns as the protagonist Cha Hyun-soo, who embarks on a journey to help find a cure for the monstrous curse. Director Lee Eung-bok praised Song Kang's growth since the first season and promised that the wait for the third season, already confirmed by Netflix, will be shorter than three years. The 8-part second season premieres Friday.
